Christmas Gift Guide II – Marc Jacobs Decadence Perfume

This Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume was originally on my Christmas wish list… but after smelling it I simply couldn’t wait until Christmas to get it. In addition to the glorious smell, I really needed that bottle to add to my ever growing, slightly concerning collection!

It comes in 3 different sizes – 3.4 oz, 1.7oz and 1oz – but I honestly suggest to go the biggest size, as I can’t imagine getting tired of this scent any time soon!


The Scent


A sensual, luxurious, and woody fragrance, Decadence embodies the spirit of irreverent glamour. The fragrance opens with sultry top notes of Italian plum, iris flower, and saffron. The heart combines luxurious notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac, and orris. The indulgent dry down reveals the base notes of vetiver, papyrus woods, and liquid amber.

The Bottle


Marc Jacobs always nails the packaging of their fragrances, their latest Decadence bottle is no different. The bottle is a new twist on putting perfume in your purse. The cap features a deep green python print and a gold chain adorned with a black tassel that can be used to carry the bottle. It’s taken pride of place in my bathroom ahead of all my other perfumes. I’m not going to lie, I do judge a book by its cover when it comes to perfume – which makes me absolutely love this fragrance.
